Keeping track of what items have been completed and submitted to the auditors is a common challenge for many companies. Oftentimes, multiple people and departments have documentation to submit, and it isn’t always easy for management to know who has provided information to the auditors and what that information includes. This can make managing a PBC list incredibly time consuming.
BlackLine’s Task Management module can help companies easily address this issue. Users can upload PBC lists directly into the module, and all of the various stakeholders can electronically signoff on each task upon completion and even add notes. Management can see real-time dashboards and reporting to keep track of the outstanding requests and ensure that auditors are getting the documentation they have requested. Additionally, administrators can give auditors direct access to BlackLine, so they can login, create their own PBC lists within BlackLine, see which requests have been met and view all supporting documents in one place. This also increases efficiency and saves other staff members time, because they don’t have to compile and transfer a bunch of paperwork—all of the supporting documentation is available in the read-only repository. With BlackLine, PBC lists are easy to maintain and audits run smoothly and efficiently.
